Printer's tray


Whilst on holiday I found a craft shop that was selling printer's trays half price. I had often looked at them but resisted getting one because of the price, but this was too good an opportunity!

The metal backgrounds were made using coloured metal sheets, embossing them with Ten Seconds Studio moulds and swiping alcohol ink over them to remove the original colour and add that of the alcohol ink.The bird was die-cut and decorated using the same method. The word 'art' was made from Grungeboard sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I attached the elements using matte medium. I coloured the little porcelain doll with alcohol ink and Glimmer Mist.
